Creighton softball will host its biannual instructional clinic the weekend following Christmas. The dates for this year's Creighton Softball Winter Instructional Camp will be December 29th - January 1st.
There are seven different sessions available for players ages 8-and-up that will cover every area of the game from defensive fundamentals and advanced positional play, to base running, pitching, hitting, and advanced hitting techniques.
Each individual session will be instructed by the Creighton Softball coaching staff and assisted by members of the 2013 Creighton Softball Team. All hitting clinics will be held in the Kitty Gaughan Pavilion which houses the indoor batting cages for the CU Softball and Baseball teams located directly next to the CU Sports Complex.
All of the defensive and pitching clinics this year will be held in the Rasmussen Center, which is the brand new, multi-million dollar indoor facility next to Morrison Stadium and the Ryan Center and DJ Sokol Arena. The breakdown for each day of camp is as follows:
December 29th1:00-3:30 pm - Pitching (all ages)**
**Due to space availability, this session will combine the younger and older age groups. However, specifics for each of the beginning and advanced groups will be addressed and drill work will be adjusted and tailored to each experience level to provide an educational and challenging clinic for each camper.
